Native vegetation that was common in the South East before agriculture and forestry became widespread is evident throughout the park. On the dunes there is an open woodland of brown stringybark, while the wetlands and flats support river red gums. Water ribbons and running marsh flowers grow in the swamps. The low heath area is bright in spring with common fringe-myrtle, flame heath and yellow guinea-flowers. Masses of spider orchids flower in spring and can be seen beside the nature trail.
Endangered red-tailed black-cockatoos, elusive restless flycatchers and flocks of yellow-tailed black-cockatoos are just some of the birdlife that can be found in the park. The swamps attract waterbirds such as herons, ibis and purple swamphens.
Echidnas, red-necked wallabies and western grey kangaroos can often be seen and, at night, sugar gliders and bats are active. Sleepy lizards can be seen during summer and, in winter, common long-necked tortoises are present.
